Caregiving & Dementia – It’s About Progress, Not Perfection

Caregiving can be one of the most difficult and yet most beautiful roles you will ever take on.  I know, because I played multiple roles throughout my life, as I am sure most of you have.  Although I have tied this lesson into Dementia, it truly is a life lesson that applies though out every aspect of life. For whatever reason, this lesson didn’t hit home with me until my Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Below is a video that explains the importance of this one simple tip which can have a huge impact on your life and the one you care for.
